Viewers can also expect Goon Cartoons behind the scenes videos, storyboard animatics, and animation pencil tests to give the fans a look at how cartoons are made. Also, the Goon Cartoons' artists will be posting behind the scenes drawings in the channel's community tab along will model sheets and other "how to" instructions for making animated cartoons.
The cartoons include:
The Ultra Mega Super Squad, a reality show styled superhero documentary featuring an animated dysfunctional group of superheroes.
Buck Billy, an agitated hillbilly podcaster who lives in a trailer park in the southern Midwest.
Pissed Off Possum, an angry misinformed marsupial who spouts off on things that bother him, which is pretty much everything.
Mr. Pigglesworth, a pathetic little pig who finds himself in the wrong place at the wrong time.
Cosmic Kandi's Like Total EDM Vlog, a twenty-something millennial Raver who podcasts from her bedroom and any EDM club she might be at.
The Devil, a reluctant Lucifer who podcasts because he's tired of getting blamed for all the bad things that happen in the world.
ANIME! ANIME!, featuring the most enthusiastic fan of Anime you'll ever know.
Garry Goth, a teenage goth kid, trying to get along in high school.
The Cletus and Floyd Show, the tale of two hillbilly brothers, one an overbearing alpha male and the other a jittery, paranoid fool.
"Nothing is off limits," says co-creator Frank Forte. "We want the Buck Billy shorts to be funny, timely, and off the wall. Some of them are scripted and some of them are Jesse just doing improv. We use Adobe Animate to animate, so this allows us to create the cartoons fast and YouTube allows us to reach the biggest audience and reach them quickly."
Goon Cartoons is a rising force in the YouTube original content space. With over 157K followers, this channel is poised to introduce new comedic cartoon voices to the masses in the months and years to come.
